Empowering Women Through Fitness
The Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum features a “Whites of Wimbledon” collection of tennis ensembles from the 1880s to the present day. For any tennis fan, this confirms that court-side fashion has a prominent place in Wimbledon’s history.
The all-white dress code is one of the Championships’ trademarks. The players’ proposed clothing designs must comply with the rules, and are sent for approval several months in advance.

Have you ever loved the idea of running tights or cycle leggings but hated the reality that they’re so tight with nowhere to hide? Our Skorts may be the answer. .. Performance shorts under a skirt. They cover and hide those areas we often prefer not to have on show. I love them!
Feminine and cute our Skorts do not compromise on performance. Our Run Statement Skort - the Swift Run Skirt is made with the highest sweat-wicking properties to keep you cool and dry. With a useful back zip pocket for your keys and iPod plus new technology night reflectives. Not to be out done, the Swim Bike Run line has the Stride Skort Capri and Kinetic Cycle Skort. Bold, dynamic and both made out of our Sweattech Power fabric, which is supportive and sweat-wicking. And you can’t go past our Grand Slam Tennis Skort. It is the perfect example of performance meets style; classic white with full box pleats and inner shorts with ball pockets.
Skorts are already a key piece in my Spring Summer wardrobe. I would have to say that they are a great addition to any woman’s training kit.
